TETON Sports began as an idea. An idea that no matter the person, no matter the time and no matter the place, anyone and everyone should be able to get outdoors and enjoy life. We started small and grew, determined to build a world and a culture and gear that would allow us all to experience the beauty and magic of the outdoors.
At the heart of the matter, TETON is here to help—help all kinds of people from different backgrounds get outdoors and enjoy life. We know that getting outdoors makes a difference in people’s lives, and we want to see that difference more and more in the world.
To us, giving back can mean many different things. We don’t believe in talking a lot about ourselves on social media channels or bragging about what we give back to the community in public. Our approach has always been a bit simpler than that. We strive to give back without seeking any publicity in return. We simply do the good work and move on. TETON Sports supports local, national and worldwide causes and organizations with funds, gear and disaster relief tools on a regular basis. We particularly believe in helping the youth in the community get outdoors and enjoy the benefits of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Apart from giving back to our community, TETON believes in giving back to our employees. We are a company that works hard to support our employees at work, in their personal lives and in their long-term career and ongoing learning goals. We provide paid continuing education programs as well as a culture and team that believe that our core value of loyalty goes both ways. Loyalty at TETON doesn’t just mean we look for employees who are loyal and dedicated to the brand, it also means that the company is loyal to the employees and supports them in all aspects and seasons of their lives. At TETON Sports, we believe that giving back to our employees is one of the most valuable things we can do.
Finally, TETON Sports believes in giving back to our customers and future customers. We know that the reason we’ve been successful over the past 15 years has everything to do with our customers, and not much to do with us. Because we owe our success to our customers, we try to give back in every way that we can. Excellent, world-class customer service and product support and a lifetime warranty are just a few examples. TETON Sports believes that getting outdoors and spending time with those you love can make all the difference in life. In a world where we’re tied to our phone and computers, putting them down and walking outside can be lifechanging. There is strength, hope and healing in the outdoors and TETON Sports wants to enable everyone, and we do mean everyone, to get outdoors and enjoy the benefits. It doesn’t matter what your background is, how you grew up, or your experience in the outdoors. Whatever might be holding you back, TETON Sports invites you to step outside and discover the world around you. By doing so, you might just rediscover yourself.
